|John Pawlak playing in powder with Zai Skis|
So next time you are willing to experiment with a technique..... "Go Ride A Bike." At the completion of a turn, pedal down with the now outside ski (extend it). This subtle move manages dynamic fundamentals. Next try to hook up the new edge sooner in the turn. You want to direct your movement down the hill and into the new turn. When you extend or pedal down your outside leg, don't forget to "pedal up" the other leg. That sequential movement will engage your edges to the snow earlier and give you more carve throughout the turn!
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
